QGIS 2.0 not working with NTLM proxy

When using the python plugin installer with QGIS 1.8 I could authenticate using our corporate NTLM proxy server by entering the following network proxy details: host, port, username, password and selecting HttpProxy. But now under QGIS this is not possible. I see that the new plugin installer was switched over the using the QgsNetworkAccessManager in this 4ecf3ebd0bae19f97f32bb040c9df95967135ba8

Going back and checking WFS and WMS (which use QgsNetworkAccessManager) with QGIS 1.8 I can't actually get proxy support working. So the problem must be that the QgsNetworkAccessManager is not set-up to authenticate with a NTLM proxy server.

This bug should be treated as critical because it will stop a lot of corporates from using QGIS.

Hi Jeremy,

is this really a regression or it wasn't supported either on older qgis releases?

The blocker tag is reserved for regression, so if it isn't, in order to clean the bug queue for this month of bug fixing prior 2.2, I guess it would be needed to lower the priority.

Yes before the switch happened in the plugin manager NTLM worked for downloading plugins. Other core web access functionality is status quo however.
